French student look after pre-calculus books

In summary, the books that are popular on this forum are Pre-Calculus: Mathematics for Calculus, by J. Stewart, Pre-Calculus: Mathematics for Calculus, by Serge Lang, and Basic Mathematique, by S. Lang. A department of mathematics is a great idea and Serge Lang is always a good recommendation.

Hi there , well my questions is in the title but i have to say some things :
I have multiples mathematiques and physics courses calc-based and so i want to review the basic .
I already search around this forum and others and i find some books who looks popular here there are :
- Pre-Calculus, by Blitzer
- Pre-Calculus: Mathematics for Calculus, by J. Stewart
- Basic Mathematique, S. Lang
What do you think about these books are there complete for acquire the base for go to calculus books of Spivak or Marsden&Weinstein after ? ( if you have any recommandation for calculus books I'm interested )

I don't know those books, as I've read those fundamental topics in my own language. Serge Lang is always a good recommendation, regardless of whether I know the book. For books, which are used at university, i.e. Calculus, resp. Analysis, members here swear on Spivak. But again, I would look out for books in French. You could e.g. visit a book store for mathematical books in a town where a university is and ask the owner, which one students usually buy in their first semester (or trimester). Of course you could also contact the math department of a university, but the book store approach is easier.

For Precalculus, you can have a look here: https://openstax.org/subjects
They are for free, published by a university and so you can just have a look and see whether they match your expectations.

thanks for your answer , i already look at the books stores of my university town but none of what the owners propose to me was really good in my opinion : nothing was coresponding of what we see in course .
The only books who look ok and correspond to what we see in ours courses are the english books for calculus or pre-calculus .
The department of mathematique is a great idea i will answer them .

There is usually only one book store which sells the standard books, and normally next to the university. If you ask in any book store, you will not get a good answer. You have to figure out the one where all students run to at the start of a new semester.

We didn't have this types of thing in france , like a book store only for student , it doesn't exist .

Only for students is a bit too strict. We had a store which had all the books for natural sciences and mathematics, and I saw somewhere in town, that there was a bookstore especially for medical students, too. This had the advantage that staff in the store always knew what to order in a higher quantity once a year. Maybe this was a privileged situation - I don't know about other towns.

have you been to Gibert Jeune, Blvd St Michel, in Paris? I recall buying math books there in my youth.
